Singer-songwriter Smokey Robinson took a do-over at pronouncing Hanukkah for a fan on Cameo, the celebrity greeting service, after accidentally mispronouncing it, reported CNN.

Robinson had mispronounced the Jewish holiday when he read the Hebrew spelling Chanukah and posted it on Twitter on Sunday.

Jeff Jacobson, who commissioned the original Cameo for his mother said on Twitter, “My mom grew up on the same street as Smokey Robinson in Detroit. So for Chanukah, I wanted to reunite them via @Cameo. But the video takes a strange twist.”

In the video, Robinson admitted  that he had “no idea what Chanookah is,” so he re-recorded the message. In a message to Jacobson, the Motown legend said, “Hey @jeffjacobson — in the spirit of 2020, I’m gonna need a do-over! Please DM your mother’s phone number so we can try this again.”

Jacobson said, “By the way, @smokeyrobinson can pronounce it any way he damn well pleases.”

He added, “He is a true legend whose music has been with me since birth. His kindness and generosity of spirit has already made this most-unusual 2020 Chanukah one of my family’s most memorable. Also, my mom says hi.”
